This wonderful Bread Roll recipe is a true no fail. It was given to me by Auntie Pearl back in the 80's. These are the number one request at any family gathering.


  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 warm water with one tsp of the sugar and let proof.
  2. Warm the milk and place into mixer bowl. Melt Butter in microwave. Add butter, baking powder, eggs, remaining sugar, and butter to mixing bowl.
  3. Start mixer and gradually add flour. When the dough is still creamy add the yeast mixture. Continue mixing and adding flour until a nice sticky dough is achieved.
  4. Knead on a floured board about 15 times. Place dough in a oiled bowl turning once to coat. Let rise until double. (About 1 hour).
  5. Form rolls and place in a large rectangular pan. 15"x11"x2". Let rise again until almost double.
  6. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until nicely browned.

Now these are the kinds of rolls I enjoy making! Well, I actually like making cinnamon rolls, too, but I'm saying, the recipe is so easy! Definitely a make again kind of recipe! Thanks so much for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

This is the kind of recipe that makes someone like ME look like they can bake! I should have let them bake for at least 5 minutes more than I did because they were slightly doughy but my kids like that anyway! I will make these again for sure. They were very easy to make and taste great! Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks BakinAreUs. :)
